“Helios Panzio - Can't rate it highly enough”
Reviewed August 3, 2011

I stayed here for one week from 27th July 2011. Right from the very start, I was made to feel welcome and relaxed. The fact that the Helios is in a residential area made it even more homely and I felt really safe when walking alone in the area surrounding the hotel. There are a few really great restaurants in the area, particularly Barackos just along the road, and Jardinette only a couple of bus stops away. The transport from the hotel into the centre of town is frequent, reliable and takes only about 15-20 minutes depending on traffic.
The breakfast was brilliant, plenty of choice and always fresh. The reception staff were all great - very knowledgeable and can sell you tickets for buses/attractions etc right at the desk.
Altogether, I would definitely come back here, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Brilliant value for money and a stress free stay. What more could you want!?

Very good service at a very good price. We traveled with our daughter and they even prepared for us a bed for kids. Another plus was the Travel Magazine in our language.

We had a delightful 5-day stay in this hotel, which overlooked the two halves of Budapest - Buda and Pest! It is set up in the hills in a beautiful residential area, but, the bus stop into the city was a 5minute walk to the main road, and the buses were very frequent, so getting around was not a problem.
Our stay was very comfortable, breakfast was adequate, the place was so homely, and the staff were very helpful, and happy to help, which is always a bonus!! It is ideal for couples, I think it may be a little too far out for younger people, but it suited us, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a balcony, and the weather in April was a little bizarre - I got sunburned on the balcony in the morning, and it snowed in the afternoon! Very wierd! The staff were very eager to please, nothing was too much trouble. There was Internet access here too, so we didnt have to go searching for Internet cafes.
